Shark Bites

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (toe) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That puts him on track to return for the AFC Championship after missing last weekend's win over the Bills. We're expecting Williams to be 3rd in line for RB touches behind Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

Recent Shark Bites

Cardinals RBs Darrel Williams and Eno Benjamin each logged 8 carries in Sunday's win over the Raiders, with James Conner left early with an ankle injury. They also split pass routes near-evenly, with Williams running 24 vs. Benjamin's 22. It was Benjamin edging Williams by a target. Conner's injury is not expected to be serious, so we'll see whether he misses any further game time. If/when he does, expect a similar work split for Arizona's reserves.

Pro Football Focus' Doug Kyed reports that "multiple league sources" identified Cardinals RB Darrel Williams as a potential surprise candidate to be cut or traded. Williams' usage through 2 preseason games has seemed to indicate he might be ahead of Eno Benjamin and others on the RB depth chart, but that has also accompanied persistently positive reports on Benjamin's performance. We'll see how this one plays out over the next week plus, with roster cutdowns progressing. For now, there's at least risk to adding Williams late in fantasy football drafts. We'd hold off on selecting him to best-ball rosters with no in-season management.

The Cardinals have agreed to a deal with former Chiefs RB Darrel Williams, according to Jordan Schultz. Williams delivered double-digit PPR points 9 times from Week 4 on, including 4 outings of more than 15.5 points (Top-12 level). A Week 5 hip injury to Clyde Edwards-Helaire helped boost Williams' role, and a December shoulder injury for CEH allowed Williams to star in Week 17. He looks like the best bet to back up James Conner in Arizona, with better size than Eno Benjamin and no less receiving upside. Rookie Keaontay Ingram is also in the competition for roles.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that the Chiefs and RB Darrel Williams have failed to reach a deal ahead of free agency, despite trying to work something out. So it sounds like Williams will hit the open market. With fellow RB Jerick McKinnon also set to hit free agency, we'll see how Kansas City fills out the backfield around Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (toe) is active for today's AFC Championship game vs. the Bengals. We're expecting him to 3rd in line for touches behind RBs Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire. RB Derrick Gore is a healthy scratch for Kansas City.
